Complicated needs for communication, will this work???

Postby Blackbox » 09/08/2018

I travel quite a bit, with very particular needs and find myself in different locations with very different cellphone coverage, sometimes none.

I did some research and I believe I found a way to make this work over a 1 year period. You tell me! My schedule is pretty well the same year after year!

I need to explain my situation to you folks because it is complicated so bare with me!
It is based on a 1 year timeline which repeats itself year after year.
My ultimate question:
DO YOU THINK I GOT IT RIGHT AND THIS WILL WORK OVER 1 YEAR WITH THE SAME PHONE NUMBER WITH FONGO? Keep reading...

I believe I need a 1 year Fongo account with a permanent phone number somewhere in BC, probably Vancouver to make this work best.

1 YEAR TIME FRAME:
Get a Fongo Account, and a permanent phone number with them all year.

1 month: APRIL: Location Canada, need a cellphone.
Get a sim card and a phone number with a service provider like PUBLIC MOBILE for the month, with a phone number in Vancouver.
USE FONGO to CALL FORWARD TO THAT NUMBER during that time.

5 months: MAY to SEPTEMBER: Remote location in Canada, only satellite internet access available. No cellphone coverage!!!
Use internet access there to send/receive calls on my FONGO CELLPHONE NUMBER

1 month: OCTOBER Location Canada, need a cellphone.
Get another sim card because other on expired and a new phone number with a service provider like PUBLIC MOBILE for the month, with again a phone number in Vancouver.
USE FONGO to CALL FORWARD TO THAT NEW NUMBER during that time.

5 months: NOVEMBER to MARCH, location Thailand, need a cellphone with Thai Sim Card (AIS)
Use internet access there to send/receive calls on my FONGO cell phone number.

1) MY GOAL IS TO KEEP THE SAME PHONE NUMBER ALL YEAR AROUND! AT A REASONABLE COST CONSIDERING!!!
2) What kind of quality of line service should I expect with this?

1)Does this seems to make sense to you folks or do you see a better way to do this???,

Thanks
Patrick

Clarification: I'm talking about with FONGO WORKS
but...
I found out I need a cellphone number to get a FONGO WORKS account to get a FONGO WORK PHONE NUMBER.

That means I'm stuck in a loop unless:

Assuming I do have a cellphone number when I setup Fongo Works and get a Fongo phone number...

2 questions:

1) Will it be possible to change my cellphone number later?
2) What will happen if my cellphone number expires?


Reasons: I travel quite a bit. My cellphone number is different several times a year. I'm often in areas with no cell coverage for several months but I do have satellite internet access.

I would like Fongo Works because I can have 1 phone number all year around!

Fongo and Fongo works are 2 different programs. You are looking to download Fongo, which will cover what you need to do.
